The effects of some of the works connected with newly developed Museum and Memorial Site in Sobibór are already accessible to visitors. At the beginning of July 2020, we opened a modern and spacious visitor service centre where one can receive necessary information and purchase books published by the National Museum at Majdanek.

What is more, from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m., open-air exhibition is available for visitors, entitled “Drawings on the scraps of life. Extermination of Jews in the Lublin region in the sketches by Józef Richter" and presenting scenes connected with the persecution and extermination of Jews in the Lublin region. Apart from the extermination in Sobibór, they also refer to the history of the ghettos and other places where extermination of Jews took place in the Lublin district.

In spite of the fact that the works at the Museum are still in progress, authenticity of the memorial site in Sobibór attracts the interest of visitors. In late July, nearly 1000 individuals visited the premises of the former German extermination camp.
